We spent three glorious nights at the Haven By the Sea. The property is a former church converted into a lovely B&B. The location is ideal for exploring the southern coast of Maine, The hosts, Nancy and Dan, were very welcoming and their breakfasts were amazing!

We recently stayed two nights at Haven by the Sea for a nearby wedding.The building is full of history and is like stepping back in time. Our room was spotless and the owners are friendly and helpful. The beach is a short walk away. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife booked our 2 night stay at Haven by the Sea in June. She received an email confirming that she reserved Room # 4. When we arrived, Danny the innkeeper showed us to a room at the top of the spiral staircase. There was no Room # on it. While the room was clean, it had no exterior windows nor any air conditioning controls to adjust the temperature. Since my wife booked this room and I thought she did the best she could, I did not want to say anything to cause a conflict. After our stay, I mentioned to my wife that not having a window to look out of was unusual. My wife showed me her confirmation email which stated that she had reserved Room # 4 which was on the first floor. After our stay, I sent Nancy the innkeeper a follow up email asking her for a discount for changing our room to a windowless room and she apologized but stated that they do that from time to time so as to not inconvenience the guests. She stated that they bend over backwards to accommodate their guests but she offered us nothing for having to stay in this room. The pictures and reviews of Haven by the Sea do not mention or show the room with no exterior windows so buyer beware!

Response from Nancy Ezzo, Owner at Haven By The Sea B&B Inn
Responded Oct 28, 2021
If you had such a terrible time here, why did you call me and ask for a complimentary stay at another time??? I guess we aren't THAT aweful. If you were a little nicer on the phone, I might have entertained your request. Hmmmm....Based on our reviews, I guess we are not so bad after all.

A spur of the moment weekend trip took us to this charming inn. What used to be a church is now a comfy bed and breakfast. The hosts, Nancy and Dan, are wonderful and made my wife and I feel right at home. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was sensational! One morning it was sweet french toast then the next morning delicious eggs benedict. Nancy was very accommodating at breakfast with dealing with my aversion to fruit and need for decaf coffee. It's a short walk to the beach in a pleasant neighborhood. You won't regret your stay at this friendly inn.

Haven By the Sea was amazing. The owners were very friendly and had thought of every little detail. The Inn is beautiful. The breakfast was more than amazing. We felt very comfortable and at home. If I had to find one complaint it would be the lighting is not ideal for applying makeup. That was insignificant though!!! We will return.

25th wedding Anniversary during a pandemic? No problem! Haven by the Sea was the perfect solution. Private. Beautiful. Serene. Perfect. Each room is appointed beautifully with individual decor. The living space is inviting and the house has shelves of books to choose from. Breakfast was wonderful and different each day. They even share recipes! Steps to the beach. Minutes to restaurants with indoor or outdoor dining. Nancy and Danny are the perfect hosts.

My fiance' and I were recently married at Haven by the Sea. Danny performed our small intimate ceremony, and it was perfect. We can't thank Danny and Nancy enough. Our room was very comfortable; I loved the fireplace in our room. Breakfast each day was delicious, and the beach was just a short walk down the street. We had a wonderful weekend at Haven by the Sea. We loved it, and highly recommend a stay here.

I brought my elderly mother for a long weekend because she felt ready to travel during the coronavirus pandemic. Haven by The Sea has done a fantastic job of keeping the B&B welcoming while following all precautions and rules for safety. It is a short walk to the ocean and Wells beach is great for long walks. The room is very comfortable, the beds and linens great! Danny was willing to prepare a special, non-sugar breakfast to meet my dietary needs and Nancy makes the overall experience warm and pleasant. Thank you Nancy and Danny for providing a setting in which my mother and I could have a special time together!

We decided on a last minute beach getaway and booked the last room at this B&B the same day. We are in love. The place is beautiful with a homey feel. The owners are very friendly and made a delicious breakfast, the beach is less than a block away...it was perfect! Would definately stay again.
